Pisang Peak Climbing
Annapurna circuit is also a popular classic trek and usually it is cited as one of the beautiful places of the world that you must visit in your lifetime. If you as a trekker desire to go Annapurna circuit, with little mountaineering experience you can also combine Pisang peak to have an incredible climbing experience.
Pisang peak ascends with ice slopes that are uniform above the Pisang village and yak pastures. You will see that the final summit of the peak is practically fully covered with snow throughout the year. The Pisang peak climbing trek will take you through the Marsyangdi valley with astounding views of Annapurna II, III, Manbaslu and Gangapurna. You will be able to explore Pisang and Gyaru village and various primitive monasteries. The Pisang peak is, however, considered one of the technical climbing peaks among all the trekking peaks, especially in Nepal. No matter if you have no or little experience in climbing, you can combine the most popular classic Annapurna circuit trek with Pisang Peak climbing for an amazing adventure trekking in Himalaya.
Pisang Peak climbing offers a lot of scope for exploration for you as a trekker. Covering the whole of the western edge that is guarded by hanging glacier, it is sure to offer a considerable challenge, while a navigation of the whole summit edge connects to a more northern summit before curving back west - looks like a terrific possibility.
